A Walrus, A Polar Bear and A Humpback Whale: Nineteenth-century Dundees Trade in Exotic Animals Image
Nineteenth-century Dundee's economy relied heavily on the commodification of animals for products and services. As Dundee rose to a position of prominence in Arctic whaling, the City also emerged as a vibrant and internationally-recognised emporium for collection and exchange of exotic animals, both dead and alive. Matt Ylitalo of the University of St. Andrews examines the eclectic mix of participants ranging from gentleman, capitalists, and academicians to sailors, entertainers and factory workers who engaged in this industry.
